    Verizon Samsung Omnia questions

    Advertisement



    I currently have a storm, looking at buying an Omnia possibly. Does anyone know if winmo has a Facebook application yet?

    Also, is google talk available?

    Lastly, will it sync with Google Calendar and contacts like the Bberry will (with google sync).

    I had the Omnia before i got the STorm.... and the facebook app thats made for WinMo is very crappy...... your better off just logging onto the site from the phone.. the reason i got rid of my Omnia was because i hated the keyboard in landscape mode if it had suretype it would have been awesome....... and the Samsung Media player had a difficult time with movies and certain media formats for music.....

    the only reason I was looking was the fact it's a smaller phone and lighter. But from what everyone is telling me, I should stay with blackberry.

    Those 2 phones, to the best of my understanding, are my only two options with Rev A 1XEV, right?

    The storm aint all it's cracked up to be either. I wish VZW had the bold or even the latest Curve with rev A.

    No such luck. It's like Verizon has one phone.... the Storm. Everything else appears to be junk.

    I just got rid of my storm and have the Omnia. I absolutely hated the storm, had nothing but problems with it. It took me a few days to get used to the Omnia, but i like it much better. its a lot faster than the storm, doesn't have freezing issues and its nice not having to do a battery pull all the time. I have facebook and myspace on it and it looks great. They keyboard takes some getting used to, but i found that using the mouse cursor is a lot easier than messing with the stylus. If u hate your storm, switch to Samsung!!
